Atrocious. Do they not know anything about treating an injured player?

The last thing you do is force the guy to try and sit-up right away or rush him off the ice(unless his life is in danger). Every single minor hockey coach in Canada should know better than that!
This.
The whole situation was handled so poorly. You have to suspect a head/neck injury and maintain head/neck stabilization.
Couldn't believe they were tossing him around like that.
